Carmel Corn Pops Mix

I came home from getting a haircut yesterday with a recipe for Carmel Corn Pop Mix. My stylist is a terrific cook and has a great collection of recipes, especially snacks. If you're wondering where I got the fantastic bowl in this picture...I bought it from jd wolfe pottery on Etsy. It is my favorite snack vessel. Autumn is a great time for sweet salty snacks. Here is what you need:

  1. 4 C. Corn Pops Cereal

  2. 1 stick butter

  3. 1 C. Brown Sugar

  4. 1/4 C. Kayro Corn Syrup

  5. 1 Cup peanuts, cashews, or mix your favorites

  6. 1/4t. baking soda

  7. 1/2 t. vanilla

Bring the butter, brown sugar and syrup to a boil, stirring continually, in a medium sauce pan. Lower the heat and boil for 5 minutes stirring occasionally. REMOVE FROM HEAT and stir in the vanilla and baking soda. Put the corn pops and peanuts in a large bowl or pot and pour the hot mixture over and stir all together. Once mixed, spread on a greased cookie sheet and put in a 250 degree oven for 1 hour. Stir occasionally. When done remove immediately from the cookie sheet and dump into a Tupperware bowl or plastic bag. I waited too long and couldn't get the stuff off the cookie sheet! I had to put it back in the oven to soften up. You might want to double the recipe, it doesn't last long!
